The root parasitic species of Christisonia Gardner (Orobanchaceae) are lectotypified. After screening of herbarium specimens and the results of field expeditions, the morphological characters and distribution of Chritisonia lawii are within the range of C. calcarata. As a result, it is reduced to C. calcarata.
